Funko Reaction: Alien Spacesuit Ripley Action Figure

5.0 out of 5 stars Great detail in this vintage 80's styled action figure of Ripley from Alien, July 8, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great detail in this vintage 80's styled action figure of Ripley from Alien 1, wearing her life saving space suit during a critical point in the movie. The helmet is removable, and strapped onto the figure through the plastic with tiny clear bands. It's absolutely great to see Funko create such a tribute to classic action figures without worrying about those who insist posing the figure is more important than the clumsy nuts and bolts usually present in a heavily articulated figure. For artistic aesthetics, less articulation hardware on the figure often means a cleaner, more sculpted look that is perfect for those who prefer to leave the figure in the classic packaging and graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chevelle unleashed: Heaviest Chevelle Album. EVER., July 8, 2016
This review is from: The North Corridor (Audio CD)
Chevelle unleashed: Heaviest Chevelle Album. EVER.

Chevelle truly lived up to their claim that 2016’s The North Corridor would be heavier. If you’re a fan of Chevelle’s tamer side, prepare yourself for Chevelle unleashed.

Chevelle starts things off heavier than I’ve heard them in a long time, with the track Door to Door’s chugging metal guitars and aggressive vocals. Pretty great start that morphs into a Tool-like etheral build up at 3 minutes before returning back to the chugging at 3:45. Cool. 5/5

Enemies hints at something intense, but then softens the guitars for banging drums, and returning soon to the guitars, combined with heavy screams unlike I’ve heard from Chevelle. Intense and angry vocals while maintaining a melody. Heaviest Chevelle I’ve heard to this point. I love it! 5/5

Joyride starts with a catchy cool loop bass line melody with hints of an electronic music style, then blended with guitars, blasting into a heavier chorus and then returning to the prior bass while adding another higher pitched guitar melody. Awesome sound and fresh from Chevelle. 5/5

Rivers calms things down to familiar territory with spoken/sung words, then erupts into a mean semi chorus, then simmering into an expanded verse, adding new instrumentation, then returning back to the heavy chorus with even more intensity and layers. 5/5

Last Days has a reckless abandon to the piercing, higher pitched vocals and style, but stays strong and gets heavier with more depth and guitar layering as it progresses. Wow. 5/5

Young WIcked rolls in with a controlled, fast paced intensity, with a catchy riff line/chug that will get most open minded metal fan’s foot stomping. Eventually, the song morphs a little, but then brings back the riff line. 5/5

Warhol’s Showbiz begins quietly, with closed cymbal tapping that merges into another kick @ss riff by 1 minute, with a new, deeper gritty guitar soon after. At about 2 minutes, things shift and twist with some fast guitar work. This song continues the heaviness without any problem. 5/5

Punchline has an electronica bass drum sound and snare, with a surrounding held guitar note, with softer vocals. This is the softest the album gets, then slams in some tom drum build up, followed by melodic chants matched with the drum beats. Cool stuff going on with the percussion variety. 5/5

Got Burned starts slow and bursts into a badass melody riff with some higher notes in there to balance out the lower chugs. This sounds awesome and remains heavy in sound and vocals. A favorite among favorites. 5/5

The final track, Shot from a Cannon, doesn’t waste any time either. Starting off quickly with aggressive guitars, but then turning into a more basic, stripped down chug, with simpler, sparse chugging and drums during the verses. Eventually, it bursts into a rage halfway through, but maintains the basic melody for this sustained 8 minute track. Enjoying the change at 5 minutes, with a downward stepping melody with acidic guitar work combined with sustained waves as the vocals subside to let the fading melody take over, eventually drifting into silence. 4/5

Overall, an incredible, heavy album with powerful vocals and melodies to those who embrace the potent dose of aggression present within Chevelle’s The North Corridor.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're a true Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fan... 3D Review, June 7, 2016
This is a non stop action ride that blasts the viewer with tons of thrilling chases, battles and epic action set pieces that match and exceed the first movie in most ways. If you ever enjoyed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles over the years, you owe it to yourself to ignore the critic reviews and watch/buy this movie for one of the best blockbuster rides of the year. Great representation of the classic Turtle Quartet, Beebop and Rocksteady joined by the villainous Kraang and Shredder, with the new appearance of Casey Jones, who smacks down the enemy with a flurry of hockey pucks.
Even better, Out of the Shadows has some of the greatest 3D effects I've ever seen in a movie. Loads of pop outs and the 3D effect is very powerful for the whole movie, even more than the first one. I love it and only fan support will allow for a sequel, part 3. Don't wait, buy it today if you're a true Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you’re looking for intense, melodic heavy metal, Chad Gray's Undeniable delivers., June 4, 2016
This review is from: Unden!able (MP3 Music)
Fans of Mudvayne may enjoy Hellyeah's 2016 album, Undeniable as 44 year old Chad Gray’s band has officially morphed from the original approach of Hellyeah with songs that contained a focus on shallow drinking, and changed to the heavier, more intense yet melodic tracks of Undeniable with more personal, meaningful lyrics, which more closely resemble Hellyeah's Blood for Blood and Mudvayne's End of All Things to Come, both albums I enjoy among others from Gray. This is a mostly fast paced album with lots of intense vocals, lyrics cranked out in rapid fire, and plenty of power screams Chad is famous for with his very unique voice. Even at 44 years, he hasn’t lost his edge and his voice is as strong as it ever was. If you’re looking for intense, melodic heavy metal with Chad Gray’s vocal style and unique sound, Undeniable delivers.

1. Very cool build up track.
2. X - Lots of energy and aggression.
3. Scratch A Lie - More intense energy.
4. Be Unden!able - Nice heavy title track.
5. Human - More tame but great. Melodic Chorus.
6. Leap Of Faith - Medium pace, like Moth.
7. Blood Plague - Heavy and fast. Melodic Chorus.
8. I Don't Care Anymore - Heavier cover of Phil Collin’s classic.
9. Live Or Die - Heavy fast pace.
10. Love Falls - Slower pace, more calm.
11. 1034 - 27 seconds background track.
12. Startariot - Rapid lyrics and intense vocals, chugging guitars.
13. Grave - Cool track and great, epic ending.
14+ BB Bonus: If you get the Best Buy version, live versions of
Demons in the DIrt, Moth, Cross the Bier, Hush.

3.0 out of 5 stars A historic take of Filmation's early days of the Caped Crusader, Batman, May 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're a fan of the original 60's Adam West, Burt Ward TV Spoof series of Batman, this show will appeal to you as it captures that style very well with its storytelling, characters and execution. The stories do sometimes get repetitious however but do try to be amusing in the TV spoof style. Bang, pow, zap for the fights. Much like a comic book.

Only other real concern I had was the fact that the show has way too many close up views of the characters face. So expect 80% of every shot in each episode to consist of a static face in the foreground taking up 50% of the screen, and someone in the background standing nearby. This was the intentional style, so if you're a fan, enjoy. I prefer more breathing room when watching a show. That said, the art style is well done, and this is a historic take of Filmation's early days and interpretation of the Caped Crusader, Batman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Partially Open world Masterpiece of Scenic Art: Uncharted 4., May 14, 2016
MASTERPIECE OF SCENIC ARTISTRY:
Just spent a good hour and a half freely examining all of the heavy amounts of detail in the thick jungle map. Often looks like a realistic painting you can step right into filled with forgotten trinkets, overgrowth of plant life taking over the man-made structures, humid atmosphere, background scenery, sunbeam lighting, bugs hovering around, water puddling the ground, ambient animal echoes, and sharp texture detail that holds up even when close. On one of the islands, I could almost smell the mud and foliage plant life flowing in the breeze around Drake. That's how insanely detailed the graphics are in this high definition, artistic masterpiece of environmental art.

OPEN WORLD MAPS INCLUDED?
A+ Graphics aside, I bought this game in anticipation of it's action adventure but also for the hints that it would offer some open world gaming where you were more free to explore at will. Uncharted 4 fulfills that promise, with a couple levels that allow complete freedom of movement by vehicle 4x4, boat or on foot at anytime you want. One dusty landscape level is quite large by a few miles, it is cut off into different segments, so once you're finished exploring one segment, you're offered the next equally open area to explore. When you're ready, move forward for the next one. Eventually, you'll reach a key location that closes off the freedom and moves you through to the next level. The ocean island level offers even more freedom on the other hand. You can circle the islands as much as you want, hopping out to explore when you want. Want to swim around the whole island? Jump out the boat and do it. There are a few detailed island beaches and inlands to also explore. Though there isn't much more to do than explore and collect hidden items in these open world segments, it's still a welcome freedom that matches the theme of these treasure seekers.

Going on foot is as simple as a press of the triangle button. Nate hops out and can walk/swim as far as he wants from the vehicle or boat. He can reenter them at any time within reach. Only three levels so far offer this freedom, as far as I've seen. Most of the other levels are more linear and force you to stick to the path.

CLIFFHANGER GAMEPLAY: Imagine playing Tomb Raider with your ability to grip walls and climb and Indiana Jones with his whip from which to swing from to reach far off cliffs and you have Uncharted 4's gameplay essence. The controls are silky smooth and responsive, so be sure to know you're reaching for something with a grip before jumping, or it's the player's fault for falling. You can zoom in for a close up over the shoulder view at any time to really examine the details of the world. The game is made with rock climbers in mind especially. Lots of rocks to traverse.

Great storytelling of Nathan Drake and Sam Drake, no loading screens after the initial start of the game (which makes the story seamless), amazing graphics that push the PS4 to the edge, solid frame rate, reliable controls and gameplay, and no glitches or crashes from my experience so far, 80% complete. So if you're a fan of Adventure, what are you waiting for? Hop onboard for an amazing journey into the wild. A+

5.0 out of 5 stars If your best friend was your enemy, would you fight for his freedom? Civil War 3D Review, May 7, 2016
If your best friend was your enemy, would you fight for his freedom? That is the question as the Captain returns alongside his right hand pal/enemy, The Winter Soldier, to combat the forces of justice. In their effort to prove "temporary insanity" of Bucky Barnes (W.S.) during his moments when the hitman inside of him takes over and his mind blanks out, Captain America Steve Rogers goes against logic to fend for his historic friend. Tony Stark, Iron Man and Black Panther, unite with Spider-Man and the team to combat them. The action is fast and intense, and beautifully captured so there is little mistake as to what is happening on screen, thanks to the Russo Team's great sense of cinematography and storyboarding, resulting in some of the best action scenes in big spectacle blockbusters today. A satisfying story, intriguing character conflicts and lots of spectacular action unite in Civil War.
The 3D is equally effective, and while much of the film is at the average mid level of 3D volume and depth, the airport battle sequence boosts into high octane, full powered 3D with even a couple pop outs. The reliably steady 3D here is very much worth a look for 3D fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good likeness to Daisy Ridley of Star Wars VII, May 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good likeness to Daisy Ridley of Star Wars VII, as Rey. The details and painting on the face are professionally painted, as well as on her torso. Only criticism is there is a chip on her name, Rey, as if the paint chipped off, and that was brand new out of the box like that. Even so, it's a minor flaw unless you're a collector, then it would be a big deal, but I just want this figure to display as the 12" Rey figure is very difficult to find, but this looks more like Rey anyway. If you're a fan of Rey and want her represented on your display, buy this. Well constructed, nice bobbling face, and a fun collectible to own of a classic movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars 60 Coleco games without having to struggle to plug in a single one of them!, May 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
To have 60 games (many of them classics) without having to struggle to plug in a single one of them and hope it catches this time without the static screen (as experience with the old 80's console), is a huge advantage with this Flash Back Colecovision Console. Highly recommended for fans of Colecovision who have since lost their consoles.
Having grown up with the Coleco, this very affordable and compact mini console has many of the games I absolutely enjoyed back then, and it's amazing to see how well those same games are still fun today, many years later. The Heist plays perfectly at the right frame rate unlike some reports that mention it's too slow, and the other games are as accurate to the console versions as I remember them, including Frenzy, Squish 'Em Sam, Cosmic Avenger, Zaxxon, Venture, Space Panic, Montezuma's Revenge, ChopLifter, Dragon Fire, Destructor (collect the pink crystal bugs with your vehicle, drop them into the blue home base and avoid the Insecticons in an open map maze over several stages), Jungle Hunt (one of my all time favorites and this plays like the arcade version), Space Fury, and more.
The controllers, once worn in a little, are responsive to your inputs most of the time and work as I remember them.
Favorite home made game is the Ghouls 'n Ghosts like game, Princess Quest. Great console so far, buy it if you're a fan.
